I know when I do, I have greater success, and when I don't, I go up on the scales/charts.

I am SO rebellious in doing this one thing. I have tried eating until full, but my full button is stuck and I never feel full...

God is dealing with some emotional baggage right now, and fortunately, I am aware that my "full" button never seems to work, so I am limiting my portions on what I eat.
Fortunately, I am committing this journey to the Lord. I KNOW He CAN help me do this!

My problem with that is not finding a pen and also forgetting where I put the journal. NO kidding. I am bad about losing things.

The more I write down what I eat, the more I fixate on food.

CLW, have you tried chia seeds? I have some that I forgot about, so am now going to be using them, one of the benefits of them (and there are many) is that they help to fill you up - perhaps they could help you in that area.

Oh boy, I sure do understand this!!!! :lol:

I just eat until I am not super hungry. I try to leave the table just a little bit hungry. I don't like it when I feel stuffed. If I leave the table just a little tiny bit hungry, it seems to catch up with me later, and I find that I am actually full enough.

I don't like keeping a food journal....like Pam, it makes me fixate and think about food ALL.THE.TIME. Or, like Linda, I keep forgetting where I put it! And I am lazy. :mrgreen:

Linda, my problem is not necessarily that I am hungry for food...I just use food to fill the void that is going on in my heart, at times. Now that the Lord has helped me identify that, I am addressing it, with the help of the Father. Just thought I'd share this here, in case someone else if struggling with this same type of food addiction. Perhaps by sharing, it might help someone else. I am like an alcoholic with food...addicted in nature, but nothing that can't be set free with the help of Almighty God. I seek His divine help to see me through this addiction as He did with other addictions early on in my new life in Christ. I am constantly reminded, I am a sinner, saved by grace.

I have heard of Chia seeds and am aware that they expand after you've eaten them, helping you feel full.

When I stick with WW I do write down everything and it does help!! I can't stick with it for life though. I have just so much else going on to write it all down every day.
I DO try to follow the plan as far as eating. I know what a healthy portion looks like so that is what I try to keep in mind when I fix my plate.
So even though I'm not logging in into a journal, I am aware of it. It does go better when I do actually write it down, though.

I once kept a journal of everything I ate, and didn't diet at all. I lost 2#.

No, I'm not good at sticking to it : (
